You uncover me every time you come around
And when you leave night wraps around me
Like a cold, thin blanket in the winter
Have all my attempts been to rid myself of your bright beams
Shining little golden bullets through my veils
Keeping me vulnerable and powerless against your fiery glare.
I squint and retreat at your dazzling exterior
Embracing love's blindness
Knowing that you will not return my sentiments
And that your glory is to upstage me.
In all honesty
We would make an unharmonious pair,
Me as I am, and you, so unreasonably shiny
But in spite of your laser precision highlighting all my weaknesses
I still need to see you
You see, I need you to see.
